Cool. Maybe you can upgrade the RAM on the next one...and maybe actual thumbsticks.

Don't get me wrong. I love my Xperia Play. I just...wish it worked.

Yeah, I don't get why they didn't go with physical thumsticks. The whole point of adding a gamepad is FOR physical input. The only way this could get dumber is if they instead had a slide-out second screen dedicated to virtual buttons.

If I'm not mistaken Samsung has done just that with one of their phones. I think it was Samsung, I can't remember. lol

Seriously. The odd thing is that they work incredibly well...IF the developer knows what they're doing.

Games it works well on:
- Minecraft
- Dead Space
- Batman: Arkham City (OnLive)
- Asphalt 6

Games it does not work well on:
- Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Funny thing is, if they just made circular indents for the capacitive thumbsticks to basically give your thumbs a stopping point, that would have made such a dramatic difference. Granted, it's still a far cry from actual thumbsticks, but such a tiny change would have made them tolerable.

They have center points....For me not knowing where you thumb is isn't the issue, its the fact games don't use it like a thumb stick and more like a touch screen controller.

Dead Space on it is awesome, and PS1 titles are awesome. Like he said if more people used it correctly the games would simply be awesome.
